I absolutely love Valentine’s day. So, being that I’m in the spirit, I created some Valentine’s day sugar cookie bark. I pushed into two heart shaped cake pans, because.. hearts are for love. I had tested this a few times, adding white chocolate chips, colored cookie dough, and I found that drizzling the chocolate looked the best.
This recipe can easily be pushed or rolled into a cookie sheet. It doesn’t have to be as fancy as I made it. The bark is firm and easily broke apart.
Did I mention I love Valentine’s day? I think I’ve been spoiled by my husband. Cannot wait.
It’s crazy how people either love or hate Valentine’s day. My parent’s have never been ones to celebrate their anniversary or Valentine’s day. I guess some people are like that.
I’m keeping this short and sweet. It’s been a long few days.
If you have a minute, go to my Facebook page and give me a like. I definitely will appreciate it!
Sugar Cookie Bark
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 T . vanilla
- 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup mini m&m's
- Sprinkles for garnish
- 1/4 cup melted white chocolate
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 cake pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with a piece of parchment paper and spray grease to cover it. I used two medium sized heart pans.
- In a large mixing bowl, add in butter. Mix on medium until creamy.
- Add in the granulated sugar and mix on medium until just combined.
- Add in the egg and vanilla and continue mixing until the egg is completely incorporated.
- Add in the flour and mix on low until a ball of dough forms. The dough shouldn't be too sticky.
- Roll out the cookie dough or press it into the baking pan. If you use heart shaped pans, the dough can be divided into two and pressed into each pan. Press the m&m's into the cookie dough.
- Spread the sprinkles on the cookie dough. Place into the oven for 15 minutes if you're using two small baking pans. If you're using a 9x13 pan, bake for 20-25 minutes until the center is fully cooked and the sides are slightly brown.
- Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes and turn over onto a cooling rack. You can break apart the cookie while it's still slightly warm, or wait until it's completely cool. I first drizzled the melted white chocolate over my bark before breaking it. I also added sprinkles on half a batch after I drizzled the bark with the white chocolate. You could also dip the pieces of bark in some white chocolate or milk chocolate. The options are endless.
